Alec Bradley Cigars Introduces Prensado Double T Cigar

The new Prensado Double T (Toro)  is the largest cigar from Alec Bradley since their Maxx Vice Box Press at 62 x 6 ½” . Made at Raices Cubanas, the “Outstanding 93”-rated Prensado blend remains unchanged; painstakingly-aged Honduran and Nicaraguan long-fillers, Nicaraguan Jalapa binder, and a shimmering, triple-capped Honduran Trojes Corojo 2006 wrapper leaf. This exquisite leaf, harvested in 2006, was fermented and aged through mid-2008. The result is a leaf with a tawny Cubanesque look and soft leathery feel.

Due to its unique shape, the Prensado Double T offers a big salvo of potent, yet ultra-creamy and naturally sweet tobacco flavors that build to a rich, complex and highly aromatic smoke. Notes of espresso and an ample amount of spice are revealed in the mid and latter stages.

When asked why the company decided to add this new size to the Prensado cigars line, Alec Bradley President, Alan Rubin said: “Big ring gauge cigars are very popular right now, and the Double T is going to give them all a run for their money! This cigar is big, bold and full of flavor. We feel it complements the Prensado line perfectly.”

The Prensado Double T is presented in boxes of 20 cigars with a suggested retail price of $12.00 per cigar.
